Phase One and Two of the Cultural Mapping Study has been completed, and we encourage you to read the full report by Forecast Public Art.
This collection of county-wide 1:1 Interviews, Focus Group Discussions, and Public Survey data has been analyzed and from the collected data, three topics emerged:
- Workforce Development (Artists + Organization)
A Cultural Mapping study is being conducted to identify racially and economically underserved communities in which art can exponentially improve quality of life. The study will also identify existing cultural assets and creative resources that the ACPC and other arts organizations can build upon.
“Building a race equity culture requires intention and effort.” -California Arts Council
The results of this study will guide the Arts Council of Placer County in awarding future Grant funds where the dollars and programs can have the greatest impact. Secondarily, the study will facilitate connecting art resources and programs, with communities that will benefit from art programs.
Arts Council of Placer County is happy to be working with Forecast Public Art on this important project.
We are currently gathering Art Master plans from our Cities and Towns, and collecting information about Cultural Assets in our County. *If you have information to share or are interested in getting involved with this project, please email and share with the project manager below.
